Kim Jong Un returns to North Korea after summit

GOYANG, South Korea (AP) — Kim Jong Un has returned to North Korea after a summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in which they vowed to remove nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula but provided no specific new measures.

As pop music blared, Kim and Moon firmly grasped each other’s hands Friday during a lavish farewell ceremony at the border truce village of Panmunjom, as photos of their summit were projected onto a massive screen installed in front of the building where they met.

Kim then boarded a black Mercedes Benz limousine that drove them back north.

The summit was almost inconceivable just months ago after a year that saw them seemingly at the verge of war.
